I've been in a reading slump lately. I honestly just haven't had the time for it, and when I do have free time I tend to hang out with my boyfriend instead of reading or playing games like I use to. But I'm trying to get back in the groove of my old hobbies and started reading this book about 2 weeks ago.
I picked up A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan .. God, I'm not sure how long ago. It was a Goodwill find though (as a lot of my books are).
I'm currently about 100 pages in, and this story starts out with a character who is a Kleptomania. It starts off with her stealing a wallet from a lady in the bathroom then goes into some of her favorite items she has stolen. Then, the next chapter is about her boss. His issues, etc, etc.
As of right now, I cannot tell you what this book is about.. because.. well.. I dont really know. Every chapter thus far is about a different person but they connect with people from previous chapters. So I know this story eventually comes together and has a point. I just don't know what yet.
Even though I don't really know what is going on, I still enjoy reading this book so far. I like the writing style. It also makes me want to continue to read this book so I can see how all these random people connect in the end. The only thing I can complain about this far is that sometimes it is hard to follow. Only at the beginning of a new chapter when you don't really know who the chapter is about.. but you eventually find out when reading a little further in.. and that honestly isn't even a huge complaint.
I'm enjoying this book thus far! That's it for my friday reads. I'm just taking it one book at a time currently :P
